My kids and my fiance keep asking me that and to tell you the truth, I really don't know. I mean, since wood working, carving and building furniture is my main hobby, I have every tool you can think of.
Seriously.
I have a building out back that's stacked to the rafters with tools....and a spare bedroom.....and 2 closets full of my Japanese planes, chisels and saws that DO NOT get stored outside. Same with sockets, ratchets, jack stands, floor jacks and everything else I need to work on our cars and trucks.
I know I'm breaking some kinda "man code" but Dear Lord, I don't need any more tools.
I have to admit though, sometimes it's irresistible. Not long ago there was a sale on 20 volt brushless Dewalt cordless drills with 2 batteries/charger and even though I already have a Makita and Milwaukee .....I bought it.

A new lawn mower? Got 2.
Weedeater ? Got 3.
New boots ? Just got a new pair for my birthday in September. [ Ariat ]
New hat ? HEY !! Leave my Stetson outta this!
I love a good cigar, so maybe a box of my favorites ? Both humidors are full. Wouldn't know where to put'em.

Know what I really want ? I haven't seen my Mom in a while because we were in quarantine and I've been pretty busy at work. My Dad died about 16 years ago and since then I have tried hard to make the trip every time I can, but Mom is 78 and when I can't, the thought of her being alone and lonely breaks my heart.
Go get Mom and bring her up for Christmas. I want to have dinner with my friends and family and watch the little kid's eyes light up when they open their gifts. I want my [ soon to be ] Mother in law's homemade yeast rolls. Her Dad makes a wicked deep fried turkey.

I want Peace, Joy, Prosperity and Happiness for us all. Yes, we may be political rivals, but I truly wish the best for you and your loved ones.

Merry Christmas to all.

I read this a while back and sent the message to my kids. Author unknown by me.

My children ask me each year.......
"What do you want for Christmas"

After thinking about it, I decided to give them my real answer:

I want you to keep coming around.
I want you to ask me questions. Ask my advice.
Tell me your problems.
Ask for my opinion. Ask for my help.
I want you to come over and rant about your stuff, rant about life, whatever.
Tell me about your job, your worries, your classes.
I want you to continue sharing your life with me.
Come over and laugh with me, or at me.
I don't care, hearing you laugh is music to my ears.

I want you to spend your money making a better life for you.
I want you to share your money helping other folks if your heart leads you there.
I have the things that I need, I want to see you happy.

When you ask me what I want for Christmas, I say "nothing",
because you've already given me my gift all year.

I want you.

Merry Christmas to you too, man.

I feel ya on the family front.

Traveling is a tough choice these days but I haven't seen my mom in a year so its worth it to have the family together.

I wish you and everyone else the best of luck in 2021.

I'm like you, I don't need anything.
One thing I enjoy at Christmas is buying gifts for people that didn't know they wanted it and buying things they wouldn't buy for themselves.

I have everything I want...and need nothing except an END to this thoroughly s#itty year.
A beautiful Christmas together with family and kids would be the very best send off to 2020 for me.

I don’t need any material objects, but looking forward to spending a day with family without thinking about all the ills of the world.

Wishing all ATS members a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year. .

I hope you get to see your mom!

I want my house to stay above disaster zone for more than an hour. I doubt I'll get that. My little boy is a Tasmanian devil. But I'd rather have the kids in the house and it crazy than to not have them there. So I guess that means I just want my babies with me on Christmas!

I wish I had a family I wanted to be around. My sister lives 1 mile away, the other 10 miles away, we txt on Christmas.

I am content to share the day with my best friend, soul mate, wife, as is she.

She has 6 brothers and sisters and it's the same deal. Friendly texts to everyone.

We always have the biggest Turkey we can find, 23lb this year, for just the 2 of us, plus the dog & 2 cats! We set up the Tree right after Thanksgiving, yet we don't buy any presents, we just read Luke:2 in the morning instead.

It's perfect to both of us.

Is it strange we are content with things as they are, even PREFER things this way? I have never been as relaxed on Holidays.

My better half says frequently, "I love our life", so do I.

ETA: We did the craziness until the parents passed about 5 years ago, hated it every year but both mom's lived for it.

Justice.

But since that isn't happening here in the states, I would be happy just having my oldest off drugs, and back to the boy I raised.

Likewise, I want for nothing this year other than 2020 to be over once and for all. Worst year I can remember.

I actually think I enjoy giving gifts more than getting them. In fact, I know I do.

I would like to wish everyone a very merry, happy and safe Christmas and holiday season!

Merry Christmas, all!!

I want everyone that is an enemy of the United States Constitution to become a “Christmas tree ornament”... and the “ugly sweater” crap to be relegated to the dustbin of history...

Oh man, here goes....
- a Ping G410 3 wood and a hybrid

- 4 Siemens 80 pound injectors(low impedence)

- A wideband O2 sensor w/gauge

- 255lph Walbro fuel pump

- an Autometer Pro-Comp Tach w/shift light(White face)

Barring that I'd be happy spending all day with my grandkids and putting together their toys.
